LEISURE: Ready, set, MO! MoRunning is coming to Poole


MoRunning, the national running event series is set to arrive in Poole in November.

The run will take place in Upton Country Park on 16th November and is a series of fun 1.5km, 5km and 10km runs. The fun runs are taking part in 24 different locations across the UK and Ireland during November in aid of the Movember Foundation who raise vital funds and awareness around men’s health. 

MoRunning welcomes runners of all ages and abilities and offers runners the chance to take part in a fun-filled race experience with added entertainment. The runs bring not only their community and country together and uniting the country in support of the charity. It is one of the only running event series where so many people can be taking part in a MoRun at the same time.

David Krangel at MoRunning said: “We’re incredibly excited to be bringing MoRunning to Poole. The running series really is a feel-good, inclusive community event that is open to local people of all fitness abilities. Participants experience a huge sense of achievement when crossing the finish line. They’re all rewarded with our iconic moustache finisher’s medal, and most importantly, it’s in aid of a fantastic charity that does incredible work.”

MoRunning has raised £1 million since it began 10 years ago

MoRunning is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and it has raised approximately over £1 million over the years. Runners will be encouraged to join in with the fun in costumes and fancy dress, including the famed moustache to continue to raise money for a great cause. 

MoRunning and Movember Foundation are focused on addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men- prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention through fundraising at the events.
